comment Why is saki in japanese written as さつき? there's other times I've seen the tsu in words without being pronounced. Why is this?
True, which is a dilemma I often face in these situations: post links/info that are only relevant to the asker's level, or post any miscellaneous info that might be helpful regardless? Nevertheless there is an English version for sokuon apparently! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sokuon

comment How to refuse an invitation with a specific reason?
It is commonly taught that way in beginner Japanese and a lot of new learners go through their studies thinking ちょっと is like a lexical swiss army knife

@Robusto we should clarify that the kanji in that case would be 家 and not 内

comment 餌食 vs 獲物​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
yeah, sorry about that. not sure what was going through my mind then. The second part of your question is just an example sentence, and the dash should be replaced with 獲物, so 逃した獲物は大きい

comment ポイント as percent
Is it being used the same way as "percentage point," as in "a difference of 5 percentage points"? I'm assuming you don't mean that the term "percent" is being replaced by points

This picture is helpful but be wary of stroke order! The big stroke will start from the side where it's aligned.

comment Particle は VS の when identifying ownership with the verb ある
That depends on the context but generally you can just say ~がない or ~が見つからない. 欠落 is way too formal and has more nuance than that, and 行方不明 is used with missing persons.
